Host takes the cake at the Capricornia
M.A.D. MATES luncheon.
Actually, the cake was to be shared between four Capricorns and a load of Myer Advertising Mates (MAD MATES). A present-day playing of the famous loaves and fishes scenario.
The Passionfruit Layer cake
was the gift of Helen Kielly. It was Helen's idea to form the MATES group and we all feel indebted to the work she put in to get the show on the road. Nowadays it makes organising an event like this a piece of cake.
Mountaineering Man of the World Ray Lloyd beams the same sparkle he displayed when the advertising department greeted the Mousketeeers on McWhirters rooftop – early 60s. The energetic Raymond visited home town Brisbane for three days and we all turned out to welcome.him. A sunshine day reunion.
Decades of Myer MAD MATES get together in Queensland garden of tropical delight. Drink of the day Pimms – served with thick 'carved
off the leg' ham sandwiches. Take a second look at that juicy smoked salmon with tiny sprigs of dill, set on cream cheese and slices of ice cold cucumber. Delicious fare. Pimms and white Phalaenopsis orchids dressed the bamboo tables as a cool soft breeze blue into the courtyard to save the day.
